Role Description

Isaac Geldhart Possible Replacement: (Supporting) Jewish, patriarch and intellectual; Isaac is a Holocaust survivor and the co-founder of a prestigious small publishing house whose finances are in peril due to his unwavering loyalty to his noncommercial authors. Vicious and vulnerable, witty and wounded, ice cold with a red hot temper, Isaac is a deeply complex character. In act two we find a disturbingly diminished Isaac -- betrayed by his children, and possibly suffering from dementia. Role is cast.
